Crockpot Applesauce

The Flylady‘s culinary sidekick Leanne Ely from sent out a recipe for crockpot applesauce last week. I’ve been thinking of doing this for a while – because I have a glut of apples from the garden, and at the moment I’m buying applesauce in a jar from the supermarket to make my Porridge Pancakes. So it would, of course, make sense for this canny Scot to make it herself! 😉

So in the interests of science and my blogfollowers, I’m going to try it out for you…

I chopped up about 20 cooking apples (only removed the cores and any obvious bad bits). Threw it all into my biggest crockpot (6 litres, I think), and it came almost up to the top. Sprinkled on some cinnamon and pushed in a couple of vanilla pods. No water. No sugar. Put on the lid. Switched on low. And off we go. Looks like this so far:

Will update the post with progress reports – see youse soon! 🙂
